Russian shipyards are trying to sue the Finnish Wartsila
Five Russian shipbuilding companies sued Finnish ship equipment manufacturer Wartsila.
In general, the arbitration court of the Russian Federation received claims from the Krasnoye Sormovo Plant and the Baltic Shipyard Yantar. Both enterprises belong to USK.
We will remind you that “United Shipbuilding Corporation” is the largest state shipbuilding holding of the Russian Federation. More than 40 Russian enterprises are part of USC. The holding develops 80% of all shipbuilding projects in the Russian Federation. In particular, it is the USC that builds the ships that are used for shelling the cities of Ukraine.
Now the lawsuits from the two companies have joined the lawsuits from “Baltiysky Zavod” (two lawsuits), “Admiralty Shipyards” and “Severnaya Verfa”. All of these plants belong to the USC.
It is currently unknown what exactly USC is demanding from the Finnish company, but one of the lawsuits states that the reason is Wartsila’s refusal to supply equipment to Russian vessels. It can be assumed that the Finnish company simply does not want to work with a terrorist state, especially with USK, which is under sanctions.
We previously reported that this year Ukraine introduced new sanctions against a number of individuals and legal entities. In particular, the Russian “United Shipbuilding Corporation” came under restrictions.
